The simple answer to this question is, yes - it is very common for hotels across the country to hire car park management to help increase revenue & enhance visitors' experience. By working with a car park management company, hotels can ensure that their parking facilities are well-maintained, efficient, and generate maximum revenue for the establishment. This is a win-win as it can help to enhance the guest experience and provide an additional source of income for the hotel.
Car Park Management Services for Hotels
There are a number of services that hotels can benefit from when hiring a car park management company:
Many car park management companies can provide parking attendants who will be in charge of a number of things to keep the car park safe and in working order. For example, they can manage the flow of traffic, assist guests with finding free parking spots, and ensure that only authorised vehicles enter and use the car park.
Parking attendants are especially common in luxury hotels or if hotels are hosting events with lots of visitors.
Did you know that Euro Car Parks is one of the only parking management companies in the UK to offer national coverage of highly trained and skilled parking attendants? If you decide to work with us, we will provide you with customer friendly and dedicated parking attendants who will ensure that your car park is managed to its optimum level. And you can rest assured that all our parking attendants are given extensive training to ensure they provide the highest customer service levels in your car parks.
Site Maintenance & Repair
Some car park management companies can also handle maintenance and repair tasks in the car park, such as repainting lines, fixing potholes, ensuring that lighting is adequate for safety, and keeping an eye on any other potential hazards that could cause harm or injury to guests and visitors.
Without having a management company to take care of your car park maintenance, hazards might go unnoticed for a long period of time, which can of course be dangerous to customers. Also, over time, the lines and markings on the surface of the car park can fade or become damaged, which might cause confusion when it comes to guests parking their cars. Car park management companies can help by repainting and marking the lines to ensure that the parking spaces are clearly defined and easy to use.
Equipment & Technology
Car park management companies can also provide hotels with up to date equipment and technology to ensure the smooth running of their car park. One good example is parking metres and automated pay stations which can be dotted around the car park, making the payment process easy for visitors.
At Euro Car Parks, we cover all payment solutions including:
- Pay & Display payment machines
- Pay on Foot/Pay on Exit payment machines
- Pay by Phone
- Pay by App
- Pre-booking App/website
We will advise you on the most appropriate payment system for your unique car park to ensure a first class customer journey.
Another common and super beneficial piece of equipment provided by car park management companies are licence plate recognition systems, such as ANPR. These are a type of parking technology that uses cameras and software to capture and identify licence plates of all vehicles entering and exiting the car park.
Here are some ways that hotels, like yours, can benefit from using licence plate recognition systems:
LPR systems can improve the security of any car park by capturing the number plate of all vehicles entering and exiting the premises. This information can be used to monitor and decline any unauthorised vehicles, track the movement of vehicles, and deter theft and other suspicious activity.
Improved Guest Experience
Number plate recognition systems can provide a much more efficient parking experience for your customers by eliminating the need for physical tickets or payment devices. visitors can simply enter and exit the car park as they please, while their number plates are automatically captured and processed for payment.
These systems can also help hotels to increase their revenue from car parking spaces by reducing the incidence of unauthorised parking and improving compliance with parking regulations. The clever system can also provide data on parking usage patterns and revenue generation, which can help hotels optimise their parking pricing, making as much revenue as possible.
At Euro Car Parks, we are passionate about increasing revenue on your car parks and our knowledgeable teams will use their expertise to provide intelligent solutions to drive revenue on your site. For example, through dynamic tariff offering or our ECP Park Buddy App.
